New Beginnings

New Beginnings is an innovative project for people in west Kent who have problems with hoarding and self-neglect. The project aims to improve the mental/physical wellbeing of people who hoard and help prevent the need for statutory intervention.

 

 

We offer a number of different packages which have been designed to help give direct support to people who may hoard. We have also developed different workshops which offer professionals, friends, families and carers the tools to focus on helping people to declutter their lives.

The packages are:

Tier 1

The full programme. 12 weeks of support through group therapy and 1:1 support (minimum 4 people).

Tier 2

1:1 support with the client’s home. An initial offer of 12 weeks support to help a client declutter their home.

Tier 3

A 3 hour workshop for professionals, carers, or anyone with an interest in hoarding. Provides useful tools to help understand and support someone who hoards.

Tier 4

A one hour workshop for professionals, carers, or anyone with an interest in hoarding. Designed to give an overview of hoarding and of the help available.

Tier 5

A 1.5 hour workshop for friends and family. Looks at how to offer support and advice to loved ones who hoard.

We can offer any of the above services to individuals, local authorities, housing associations and other agencies. We may also be able to offer bespoke packages to suit your needs.
